In memoriam: Hermosa Beach students commemorate 9-11 victims

Hermosa students under the direction of the Builders Club have collected more than 8,000 buttons to be embedded in and around a bench to commemorate the people who died in the 9-11 terror attacks. Hermosa Kiwanis raised money for the bench itself, the location of which was being determined.

The students brought buttons from home, collected buttons from friends and loved ones, and wrote to movie, music or athletic stars for buttons.
